46: salt factory

Just few kilometers north of Swakopmund is Cape Cross Salt Pan, which Jochen and I visited on one of the afternoons. This particular salt mine produces approximately 120 000 tons of salt per annum! Actually, the salt mines are not very impressive by themselves, but the salt pans are as they come in variety of colors.
